Configuration of 2 ISP in Dual WAN Router

Q: Configuration of 2 ISP in Dual WAN Router

I have 6 units of PC and i have 2 Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Using a dual WAN Router, how can i configure it to have my 3 PC connected to 1 ISP and the other 3 PC is connected to another ISP.
ISP 1 >>> >>> 3 Computers
>>> Dual WAN Router >>> Switch/HUB
ISP 2 >>> >>> 3 Computers
Just thinking if it is randomly get an access to net. If there is a way to configure or assign them on which connection them will be pls. guide me.
If can't get my illustration i will make a better one. ^_^

hmMm... and does this settings can connect my 6 Computers with each other? So, that i will have an access to them? Or in use of LAN Games or File sharing?

what is the disadvantage and advantage of this settings?

Is there any security benefit (extra firewall, etc) from using two routers to connect to the internet. For example, this computer connects to port 1 on my Netgear. From the WAN port, a wire connects the port 4 of my Dlink. The WAN port of my DLink connects, of course, to my modem and the Internet. second do I access the secondary router. Anytime I type in "", I only access the DLink interface. (I was confused about configuring the Static IP on the secondary Netgear so I left it as is) Any ideas/ suggestions. Can I somehow use this dual router to my benefit?

I have a Netgear (RP614) and DLink (DI 714P+). Networking has always somewhat eluded me, and I was wondering what benefits/unique configurations may be derived from two routers.

Here is the setup.

Thanks in advance

I was a bit of a loss and maybe it's because I have been out of the game for a long time but I came across a disturbing development. I call century link because my router was not connecting at the proper speed of 7 mbps. That problem was easily remedied over the phone but the lady said she could see several devices connected. This lost me a bit because I have a double router configuration. The Actiontech PK5000 i turned into nothing more that an internet modem. I disabled the DHCP and configured my Linksys E1200 for all the internal DHCP so there is only one cable going to the PK5000. I should technically speaking look like one user on there network with natural protection from the second router. I may be kidding myself or man I'm getting old but if someone can tell me how that works it would be fun to know and what would even be funner to know is how to stop it!!!!!!!!

Hello Everyone,

I just wanna ask for some help regarding configuration of a vpn firewall router that is connected to a 4g modem/router combo.
I am new in setting up a vpn and not so much familiar with others things or what setup is necessary, kindly help the poor guy please???

This is what I need:
- I need to connect the VPN FIREWALL router and use its features at the same time connected to the internet ( the VPN FIREWALL will act as the security for the whole network and the 4G modem/router will be the one supplying the internet)
- Need to establish a VPN connection later after the configuration.
- The server and other lan pc's must be accessible outside the local network when connected to VPN (web server, local pc's shared folder and files, etc)

Here's some details that i hope might help:
- I am using a Quanta 1K5 4G LTE modem/router combo
- I am using a Dynamic public IP address,( but this is not a problem because i am using s DDNS)
- My VPN FIREWALL brand/model is Micronet SP881 B VPN FIREWALL router
- Right now i am already connected to the internet using the vpn firewall physical connection is:
4G modem/router-->hub-->VPN firewall router-->PC
my connection is 4G(LAN)-->VPN (WAN) set the connection type to Dynamic IP
-The remote connection and remote access (web server, ftp,RDP) is working fine on the 4G modem/router alone.

I attached some screenshots of the VPN firewall router
Looking forward to hear from you guys, Thanks in advance!

I currently have Edimax dual wan router connected to my home network. Comcast provides cable broadband & Verizon DSL provides 2nd broadband connection. Both provide 15mbs, which is best I can get in my area until Fios is available via Verizon. 9/1/07 is target available date at this time for this service.
I have both wan line connected to Edimax, then I have Linksys wirelessG connected to a lan port to provide wireless connectivity for my wireless home network. I also have 2 etherned(wired) connections to this Edimax router. My laptops connect wireless. This setup works great until I have to work. Let me explain...
Here is my issue: I work remotely and I use my office desktop which is wired to Edimax dual wan router. When I connect to my company vpn, I have good connectivity and have no issues with timeouts or any other connectivity issues. However, when I am connected to company vpn, (IP tunnel) I lose the rest of my home network. No system, wirelss or wired can get past my connection to public internet.
Is there a way I can configure my hardware as to have best of both worlds? I tried creating dmz, I tried static ip routes and I still have same problem. It is possible I may not have done this correctly, but I am also thinking that I may need to reconfigure my hardware to facilitate the vpn connection and still leave a route for my wireless connections to get out to public internet. Any suggestions? Let me know if further information is required.

I seriously doubt you'll see any benefit to fooling around with teaming or trying to use both NICs. If you have a gigabit network, you should have sufficient bandwidth using one to ignore the other one. I have several machines with dual NICs, and one is unused.

can someone pls help me understand this funda.... why is it so......??

thanks in advance,


A:Dual channel RAM configuration

This all depends on what hardware (motherboard) configuration you use. If you run 1 stick of memory, this cannot be a dual channel configuration. Dual means 2. It is also nice to have matched pairs of memory in Dual Channel. It doesn't matter if you use 2 512MB sticks or 2 1GB sticks, or even 2 2GB sticks in Dual Channel. Remember it's your motherboard that determins the best Dual Channel setup

Hey all!
First of all I would like to introduce myself to this forum and say hi. Hope you are all well. Secondly I would be more than grateful if someone could help me with this particular problem.

I?m running windows XP Media Centre Edition (SP3). All drivers updated, latest virus definitions etc etc. Now, a few days ago I had what one would call a catastrophic error. Basically removed the following file (please don't ask me how I still don't know and its quite embarrassing lol) C:/windows/system32/config/system.

So, we all know that this is a massively important file and serves as a basic boot up requirement file. Mine was missing or corrupt. I used the Win XP start up disk to use the "repair" function and entered the recovery console.

Using the command prompt I firstly tried the FIXBOOT and then FIXMBR to try to salvage my C partition, unfortunately to no avail :(

So, I knew this was bloody serious! I then proceeded to do a BOOTCFG (was not or have never been familiar with this command nor understood its purpose but I was clutching at straws at this point and was a last resort) and did a BOOTCFG \REBUILD.

Now, this basically in the description gave me or the "user" the ability to add an OS to the computer or at least that?s the jest I believe (please do correct me if I'm mistaken). So, in doing so I "accidentally" entered the option to do this and realised I didn't actually want to ADD an OS as I knew at this point that it wasn... Read more

A:Accidentally set up dual boot configuration!

I had an issue like that a while back. If I remember correctly, right click on my computer,. go into properties, and look through there. I believe there is an option that allows you to choose which OS the system boots into. I can't remember exactly where it is, but I'm pretty sure it's in that option grouping.

Hope this helps.

I have a dual NIC in my work desktop (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit) connecting to separate routers. Eeach router has internet access, each on a different segment, each on the same subnet. We have 2 independent networks here. One segment is a domain and the other is a work group. Both have multiple servers.

The first NIC's IPv4 is configured with a static IP Address on a Domain and has a gateway configured. The second one also has a static IP address in a work group and is configured with no gateway. This seems to work fine, but the second one shows up as a Public newtork and I would prefer it to be a Work network.

Researching this pointed me to an article that said networks without default gateways are always public.

I changed the second NIC to also have a default gateway, matching the router's IP Address on the second segment. Windows slapped me for having 2 default gatewyas and let me save it anyway. Now, both connections are showing up under Domain Network and everything seems to be working fine. Both connections show that they have internet connectivity.

I fear that just because they seem to be working does not necessarily mean that is is working efficiently. I am also not positive that it even matters that the second one is listed as a Public network. Can anyone identify the proper configuration in my situation?

A:Dual NIC, 2 Segment configuration question

OK, after a bit more poking I now have the second router configured to assign a static leased IP Address for my second NIC where it assigns the NIC an IP address based on the MAC Address of the card. Then I configured the ipv4 for that card to obtain an ip address automatically.

Now, that connection's details show the original IP Address (the one I had previously set as a static IP on the card itself) as well as a default gateway (Router #2's IP Address), and I am no longer getting slapped by Windows for having 2 default gateways (even though each connection shows that it has a default gateway in the details). It is also showing up as a connection in the Domain Network's location.

Visually, this seems to be set up the way I would expect to have it, but I am still not 100% positive that I have good expectations.

Any input?

In my old Dimension 8300 (BIOS A07) I now have a pair of WD Velociraptor 280gb SATA HDD
Other than having them as C & D drives respectively - can anyone recommend any better configuration arrangement when I install Windows 7 32bt (I am currently running W7 Evaluation)?
I already have an external 1TB for backups/archives etc - my total "in machine" storage requirement is only about 200-240gb (but probably smaller if I did some house-keeping)
My system usage is a bit of Flight Sim (FSX), photoshop, music storage.
Ideas that occur to me are:
a) Raid 0 for ultra fast speed - but can I do that without a Raid Controller card in Windows 7?
b) A contiguous virtual (?) drive that combines both physical HDDs
c) Any other ideas?

Okay, here is the scenario...

Drive #1 is split into two equal partitions

Partition C: has Vista Home Premium on it

Partition D: has XP home on it

Drive #2 (Drive E:) is for my data/games/etc, and has no OS on it.

I had the system set up where I could choose either OS upon boot.

Yesterday, for whatever reason I was greeted with...NTLDR is missing and I couldn't get into either OS.

Booting from the Vista DVD I repaired Vista, which is the only OS that appeared on the list and the system now boots straight into Vista, with no sign of XP.

I accomplished this by following the directions on THIS website under Step 3, but when I try and proceed as the administrator with step 4 I get...

"An error occurred. The system cannot find the file specified."

Out of curiosity, at command prompt I typed in "bcdedit" and under Windows Boot Manager, next to Device it says Partition=E:

Does this make sense? Drive E: has no OS on it. Why would the boot configuration be on it?

Any advice as to how I can get things back on track?

I originally stated out with XP Pro and then installed Win 7 in a separate partition with dual booting. Now I want to get rid of the XP OS and recover the partition the XP OS is in for other uses.

Running bcdedit shows the the Win 7 as drive C and XP as drive D. The master boot record, I am guessing, in is drive D.

So how do I get the master boot record into the Win 7 partition so I can delete the partition containing the XP OS?

Hello bmwmcrider,
As per my experience i dont think you can remove the 1st installed OS from your computer and make the second one work without the first one. You have to keep your first OS in order to make the other one work. (If i am going wrong please correct me)

Just after advice on dual configuration RAM:

I'm running an AMD AM2 3800+ on an ASUS-M2MPV-VM board with an ASUS EN7300GS video card, it came with one stick of 1GB DDR2 PC4200 533MHz RAM, I've just bought another stick of generic 1GB DDR2 PC4200 533MHz RAM and was wondering which slot would be best to plug it into. I realise for dual configuration RAM you should use the same make of RAM but I don't have two the same so would I be best to run it as single or dual??
Also, if I should run it as dual does that mean plugging one stick into slot A1 and one into B1? I have four slots A1 and A2 together, and B1 and B2 together.

Thanks for any advice.

A:Dual configuration RAM advice needed.

You're talking about dual channel RAM right?

Then you'll be able to run the RAM in single channel mode only. For dual channel operation the two sticks need to IDENTICAL.

I would put them in the A1 & A2 slots.

Ok, so I just added Windows 7 to my lineup. After an epic battle with permission problems between XP and 7, I finally managed to fix it and have moved on to a slightly more odd yet annoying problem- my dual monitors.

The way I used to have my monitors set up was my monitor on the right had my task bar and icons... but the monitor on my left was the main monitor. That way when a program opened it would open on my left monitor (which is right in front of me) while still allowing me complete access to everything under my taskbar and all my icons to my right.

Is there any way to do that in Windows 7? When I select "Make this my main display" it moves the task bar over to that monitor, which is annoying. Any suggestions?

Note: for those of you curious on how to do this in XP or Vista- pick the monitor you want to be your main monitor (the one programs open on) and pick the one you want to have your taskbar. Let's use my setup- main monitor on the left/Task bar and stuffs on the right).
-Go to display, right click on the right monitor and uncheck "attached". This will turn it off. Now all you have is the left monitor with taskbar and stuff all over it.

Wasn't sure if this should go in hardware or here seeming as it's about monitors as well as the graphics card, but yea.. move if needed I guess

So.. today I got a new monitor. One of those korean 27" 2560x1440 displays, the QNIX qx2710. I have also an LG 22" old flat panel screen, and a 20" hdtv that's got DVI on it. For years I've used my 22" as my main and my 20" tv as the second screen (extended, not duplicated)

Today is where it got weird, although I THINK I've worked out what is going on, I'd like some people in the know to chime in as my expertise is software, not hardware. The new monitor works beautifully (typing this on it now.. amazingly good considering it was ?200 brand new!), it's one of those panel only single input things that make your GPU do all the work, whereas some don't (from what little I understand of monitor complexities). It appears my 22" is also one of those, or at least I'm guessing so, as it's a single input also and was pretty cheap when I got it years ago. My GPU (hd6850 sapphire toxic edition 1gb) has a bunch of ports on it, two mini display port, plus two DVIs, and a hdmi.

The 27" and the 22" (both single input monitors) will not work together, on ports that work in other configurations, with wires that work in other configurations, etc. Here's what I've tested. Top herein refers to the top DVI port on the GPU, which I assume is the 'main' or w/e, and bottom the other one.

This is your card, eh?

Windows 7 lets you manipulate them in the Screen Resolution settings (right click desktop and select that), just get them all working together, by any port possible.

I suggest you call Sapphire on this for direct support, video cards vary greatly on this and that will get you FIXED IN A JIFFY, otherwise we are just guessing.

Tell them you have 2 monitors + a HDTV and the connector specific limitations of each, then let them walk you through it.

Tell them what you have available now, and perhaps you will avoid buying anything.

I've been using Vista for the past 2 years but now I would like to Upgrade XP to 7 with keeping Vista.

I think you misunderstand. On OEM (eMachines, HP, etc.) systems...those disks belong with that particular system. If the system dies, the license dies.

Additionally...any recovery/restore CDs from a different system...contain the drivers necessary for that system, which are highly unlikely to be the same as those for a different system.

In cannot achieve your objective, using disks from a different OEM system, IMO.

I have a WNDR3700 connected to a wired network that I access through wireless. When I get pretty far away from the WNDR3700 I loose the ability to connect and I was thinking if I could extend the wireless network by adding a DAP-1522.

I want to have the WNDR3700 and the DAP-1522 connected via wireless and using a laptop I want to be able to access the wired network from anywhere in the facility.

Can this be done and could you guys tell me step by step how to do it, I will definitely appreciate.

For best performance is good to have cable installed between WNDR3700 and d-link access point at remote location. All those repeaters, extenders and wireless distribution systems affects wireless performance.

Been having problems with my router today, was working fine and then all of a sudden dropped out.With a notification that the Modem wasn't working. I plugged in my laptop via Ethernet to Modem and it worked as fine.

Contacted my ISP and they said it was the router just broke, therefore I purchased another Router today, to my disbelief, still the same problem,can connect via ethernet but not WLAN.

Devices will connect locally but not to the internet.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Russ

A:Help needed with Router Configuration

is this all wireless devices cannot connect to the internet
and thats with two different routers

whats the make and models of the routers

is there a modem involved ?
if so make and model

do a power cycle - see below


How to power cycle

&#8220;power cycle&#8221; process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.
Wait at least 1 to 5 minutes. We have found in some instances you need to wait at least 15 minutes
Plug the power cords back in, but don&#8217;t switch them on.
First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on the router (if a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer, You should now be able to access the Internet.

Dual band AC routers can be tricky as they sometimes are not compatible with older wireless N clients.

Best to upgrade any wireless n NIC's to AC NIC's if they can't connect consistently.

Also depends on if there are any other routers in the network, or if the modem is a modem/router or just stand alone modem, not enough information here for me to give directions.

For some time now, my home LAN has been experiencing some problems. The router (an ss2624 speedstream wireless) sometimes doesn't want to work, (or most of the time) and sometimes it does. I have three computers connected to it, and they all can access the router's web page. However, none of the computers recieve internet access.

One of my computers is able to connect the the cable modem directly and receive internet. I use all the numbers I see from running winipcfg on my directly connected computer when I setup the router, but for some reason the router will not work. I make it so that it uses a static IP address from the ISP (which I'm not entirely sure even is static, even though I always see that same IP address, I also see a DHCP server number) and also I put the DNS server I see, although I am able to choose between 4 different numbers. (I put the others as alternate.) Am I missing any information from my ISP?

A:Router configuration problems

Set your router back up to receive DHCP if your ISP requires it. Sometimes ISP's use private IP's for you, that conflict with your current router config. If your router IP is, then make sure the IP that you get from your ISP is not 192.168.1.(1-254) Earthlink is bad about this. If it is the case, just change your router (inside address, not the external ISP address) to or something other than just change the second to the last number to anything else.

Not the best at drawing a mental picture here. but

If WAN address is
and router is , they conflict. Plus the router needs a different network like for you to be NAT'd

Hope this helps.

I recently purchased and installed a Linksys RT31P2 wired router while converting to Vonage VoIP. I installed the RT31P2 behind an Actiontec GT-701 DSL Gateway (modem/router). I plugged a telephone into the RT31P2 and my VoIP phone service works great. Because my Actiontec GT-701 DSL Gateway only has 1ea Ethernet port, I had to remove my local computer from the Actiontec Ethernet port so that I could connect the RT31P2 to the same Ethernet port. After removing the local computer from the Ethernet port on the Actiontec GT-701, I moved it an open Ethernet port on the RT31P2. The local computer has Internet access and appears to work normally accept that it can no longer file or print share with the other computers on my home network. Prior to this change, I had 3ea wireless NIC-connected computers and the Ethernet-connected local computer configured onto my local network via the Actiontec GT-701 DSL Gateway.

After the installation of the Linksys RT31P2 router, the local computer can no longer file/print share with the 3ea wireless NIC-connected computers.

Hi folks,

Glad to be on board, this website came highly reccommended by to me by some fellow members of a Boston Red Sox fansite, and I must say, the info here is great.

I finally have a question to ask:

Recently, I set up a pretty complete wired home network so that I could work from home more often. In so doing, I added two laptops and another desktop to my office, which used to house just a single desktop. They are all connected to my cable modem through a router.

Over the past several months, my partners and I have been using AIM and MSN Messenger's talk programs (I believe this is called Voice-over-IP, is it not?) pretty regularly throughout the day to stay in touch.

When the single PC was connected to the internet without a router, these programs worked easily and flawlessly. Now, as the four PC's are connected to the internet through the router (and are therefore behind the router's firewall??) I can not use either application for voice conversations on any one of the four PC's. Simply put, they will not establish a connection to my peers on the other end.

I am now on my second router (switched from D-Link to Belkin). The tech support from both companies has been horrible, and neither has been able to help me connect using these apps at all. They are all pretty sure that I will eventually need to open the correct port or ports, and will need to configure the router accordingly, but none of them seems to know how to do so themselves, and as suc...

I sent over a Linksys DIR-615 router to a friend in Venezuela as he does not have any wireless internet, now from my understanding and what he has explained he has a modem to router connection already, however the router does not have wireless.

He got the router today and I told him to replace his current router with the one I sent him. Now the connection going from his modem to router wouldn't work in the WAN port. So we placed it in LAN ports along with his two PCs and great, he got internet on both computers but he can't access the router configuration to set the wireless.

Now I made sure it all worked before I sent it, I replaced the router I have at home with it and it worked with the IP
However when he enters that it doesn't bring him to the router configuration, nor with,, and some others.

So I told him to use ipconfig to get the gateway IP and trying to use that to access the router, but still it won't work.
The Ipconfig looked like:

Adaptador Ethernet Conexión de área local :

Sufijo de conexión específica DNS :
Dirección IP. . . . . . . . . . . :
Máscara de subred . . . . . . . . :

So basically I have come here in search for help on how I can get to the router configuration and enable the wireless for them.
Anything you ask I can ask of him and report back.

Tips on setting up broadband connection, courtesy of Johnwill

You don't need any setup disk to configure a broadband router.
. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.
&#8226; Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
&#8226; Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
&#8226; Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
&#8226; Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
&#8226; Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.

networks with a few windows computers and broadband modems, but the last time was some

I have one PC (Win7 Ultimate 64) with a 3G modem (via USB) and want to use this computer (PC1)
and the 3G connection to act as the internet connection (using ICS) for my home network.
This computer now connects to the new D-Link router (via LAN).
I want to use this router to connect the other devices in this network (LAN/WLAN) with PC1 so they
can also use this internet connection (via ICS) and also for the other basic network uses (file sharing,
printing, ...).

but how do I have to configure the router so he "knows" that all internet traffic is going through the

Hello everyone.
I just acquired a tablet (Transformer Prime) and wanted to add another wifi router to my network connection as a way to increase the signal on my room. I tried following the instructions on this Linksys help article:

I've tried the first method described and completed all steps and still couldn't connect the second router. when i connect both by the ethernet socket only the first one, unaldutered, worked providing internet access to my PC by wire but the second one didn't increased reception on the tablet at all.
Ipconfig shows no sign of any other device besides the working router when they are connected by the ethernet socket. When i connect only the second router ipconfig reveals there is no "Connection-specific DNS Suffix" and "Default Gateway". I cant change options back to normal in the web browser because i dont have a default gateway number anymore

What have i done wrong? how can i fix this and configure this damn router to give me my precious wifi speed?
Any help would be appreciated and I'm verry sorry for the long and badly explained post (im a noob with pcs, to say the least)

A:Problems with second router configuration

Reset the second router to factory default settings and try the following procedure. It is the same as your linked article Option 1, but maybe it will be easier for you to follow.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-... Read more

On my Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop I recently added a second screen (Acer 20" flat screen), hooked up with a DVI-D connection. The laptop (via the Intel GMA 950 video card) supports both clone and extended screen mode--I am using it exclusively in extended screen mode, i.e. just as if I had a desktop machine with two monitors attached. By default it sets my laptop screen on the left, external Acer on the right, with the Acer screen resolution set to match the laptop (the laptop is perhaps 10-20% smaller).

Using the standard Windows XP control panel applet ("Display") I went to settings and made two changes:
A) Dragged monitor 1 from the left of monitor 2 to the right of monitor 2.
B) Increased the resolution slider on monitor 2 to its maximum (1680x1050).
These changes took effect immediately, the spatial arrangement worked as expected, and everything is fine, even through a reboot.

The problem:
When I hibernate and then later resume from hibernation, the display settings revert to the default, undoing both the (A) and (B) changes I indicated above. In testing, I also tried Intel's native control panel (GMA driver) which allowed me to do make change (A) above, but the same problem resulted. And as I stated, the changes *do* persist through a reboot.. Any ideas on how to make the display configuration persist across hibernation?

I was wondering if it's possible to maintain a dual monitor, extended desktop configuration when moving a relatively large network from XP Professional to 7 Enterprise. As it stands now, after the Win 7 image finishes installing the secondary monitor does not automatically attach leaving the user to have to do so when they log on for the first time. We have seen cases where the second monitor does attach, but the primary monitor has switched. This greatly increases calls to the help desk, so if its possible to have the second monitor automatically attach that would be helpful.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to set the secondary monitor to attach at first logon essentially maintaining the former XP extended desktop configuration?

Thanks in advance.

If the hardware is identical, you could configure one system with Windows 7 and set up the software, settings, etc, then sysprep the drive and clone it. You can use an answer file, or you could do a quick registry edit that will prevent sysprep from deleting the drivers.

Hard for me to believe but I'm having trouble finding the answer to this. I'm preparing for a fresh install and plan to once again set my primary HD for dual-boot. I currently am doing this having partitioned my 180Gb SSD into 3. There are 2 bootable Win7 partitions and a 3rd that I consider common. On the common resides a few shared documents along with Outlook data files and not much else. Now I have to wonder if there's a standard setup that might suggest many more common files could and should be placed centrally for use by both bootable partitions? Maybe even all the common application program file such as for anitivrus, Office, possibly even Flash, Java, etc?

Hope I explained myself properly. Any insight or a link to info that could help me with understanding this would be greatly appreciated.

A:Best option for configuring shared apps in a dual-boot configuration?

For data files, a shared partition is OK - although you can run into permission problems.

For programs, it won't work. There is more to it than just program files. When you install a program and direct the installer to that partition, it also sets the registry entries, etc. to point to that installation. Your second partition would not have those settings.

Ok quick question, i currently have 2 Dlink DSL 2640R's networked together and set up correctly, the Master router is assigning DCHP addresses and the secondary is forwarding to the relevant computer thats connected to it.

I have two PC's both connected to the secondary router, which are able to network together and use the master routers internet,

However, my girlfriend is buying a new laptop next week, and wants to be able to stream music from one of my PC's to her Laptop while connected to the Master router (so she isnt affected by any lags due to networking happening between my two pc's i regularly switch files between them, hence the second router)

so 2 questions:
Firstly, am i right in my above statement that if My 2 pc's are transferring via router number 2 router number 1 will serve her with no overlap between the 2?

and Secondly, DCHP is off on the 2nd router, and as far as i can see, the main router see's my pc's and the 2nd router is invisible, so am i right in thinking that her PC will be able to see both my PC's on the 2nd router? or will she just see router number 2? (i read somewhere that some routers see all clients connected to the 2nd router as one IP address and the 2nd router sorts it out when it gets there)

I've been trying to solve this problem for over 4 months now by myself so any help would be appreciated. I don't like asking without trying to solve and search for this by myself first, but I just can't do it

- Desktop Computer (works fine when directly connected)
- Laptop Computer (works fine when directly connected)
- Cable Modem
- Wireless-G Router (Model CWR-854) - Firewall enabled - All wired connections - No wireless enabled

1) BitTorrent won't work properly. “Checking for firewall...” just keeps going
2) It won't allow access to internet banking sites completely. Accesses main pages, but times out when trying to log in.
3) Google Videos and YouTube slower.

When I disable the firewall on the the Wireless-G Router, everything works fine. It's just the settings on my router firewall which is messing things up.

Attempted Solutions:

For 1) Allowed port 6881 for inbound and outbound TCP access on router firewall - didn't work - tried disabling Automatic port mapping (UPnP) - didn't work

For 2) Allowed port 443 (SSL) for outbound TCP - still didn't work

For 3) Haven't tried anything!

Do you have any idea on setting up the Linkys Router with 4 port switch (besfr41)? I have followed the directions in the manual but I get nothing, no connection to the internet. The modem is connected to the router and the router is connected to the pc. Although I am using a straight cad 5 cable between modem & router. Use a crossover cable instead between the DSL modem and router? Any comments would be great.

My wireless linksys router is acting up on me again and i'm not sure how to handle this. I copied the error messages exactly as displayed. Sometimes the problem stops after i wait 30min or so but this is happening allot more frequently now.

I started getting these errors in this order

window failed to find domain name prpblems with DNS server
windows confirmed that ''primary DNS server'' is currently online, but is not responding to connection attempts at this time.

This usually means that a firewall is running somewhere between the two computers and is blocking ''domain''. windows has confirmed that windows firewall on this computer is correctly configured to allow this connection. However, a remote firewall might be blocking your connection.

The following policiy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect:

Policy provider: windows firewall firewall
filter name: query user

if the policy provider identified is windows firewall ,click for information about adjusting windows firewall settings. If a differnt policy provider has been identified, check the provider's documentation on how to adjust the policy settings.

Reset the network adaptor ''wireless network connection''
resetting the adaptors can sometimes resolve an intermittent problem.

A:Linksys router configuration issues

When Windows gives messages like that there are only two choices:

a. laugh; or

b. cry.

The problem goes away sometimes after 30 minutes with you doing nothing, right? Can you still access the router (ping it, or access its config or status pages)? Have you tried a reset or power cycle of the router? If so, does that clear the problem?

If it is a router problem about all you can do is make sure you have the latest firmware; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it. Next step after that is to replace it.

I have no idea where to start, a friend of mine sent me a link for Windows 8 Pro link, it's not original nor cracked, it's just non-activated (it kept asking me for activation key), that's not the problem tho.
I have windows 7 already, downloaded the iso he sent me, I tried to extract it into a flash, tried to boot from it, it didn't work, I said why not extracting it? I did, and opened setup.exe, and installed windows 8 successfully! And I could dual-boot normally.
I went back on windows 7, backed up my files into another partition, renamed the partitions into Windows 7, Windows 8, Others(backup) and went to windows 8 and started restorting from the new parition, after all I went to delete windows 7 in a stupid way by deleting the Windows 7 partition, it didn't work fully, some folders stayed as Windows/Windows.old ....etc, so I went to windows 8 partition to extend it since I deleted lot of gbs off the windows 7 partition, I've done so, and there was option saying to make it primary parition althought it was checked on windows 7, I checked on it and it went unchecked on windows 7, I didn't care much.. and it asked for reboot, and I did.

I have two Samsung SyncMaster 2243BW monitors that are connected to a single computer with a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 graphics card.

The problem I am having at the moment is that when you maximise a window, it gets maximised across the two displays rather than only on its relative display. As well as this, during log-in, the dialogue box is displayed directly in the middle of the two displays, making it unreadable.

Is there a way to correct this so that a maximized window would only be maximized on the display it appears on rather than across the two displays?

Also, it may be of relevance that when I view the 'Settings' tab in the display properties, only the settings for one monitor appear. I need to access the NVIDIA control panel to adjust settings for a dual-monitor configuration.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have two U2715H monitors connected via one mDP->DP cable each to an E-Port Plus docking station (actually a EURO2 Advanced Port Replicator) in which is seated a Latitude E7450 laptop. All items are brand new. The E7450 is equipped with 16 GB RAM and two graphics cards: Intel HD Graphics 5500 and NVIDIA GeForce 840M; selection is automatic, which usually means the 5500 is in operation. It runs Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64 bit). The docking station apparently has DP 1.2a capabilities (for daisy chaining) but DP 1.2 is disabled in both monitors.
I have successfully set up the system to have the Windows desktop span both monitors at 2560x1440 resolution, even with the Latitude's internal screen as a third extension at its full resolution (1920x1080). The Main display may be set to either of the two (or three) and I can successfully move the sequence of the monitors around (left, middle, right).
So there is no doubt about the system's capability to support the intended configuration. However, when I dock the Latitude (mostly with the lid shut) and boot it, most of the time it cannot reestablish the configuration of the two external monitors. Some of the symptoms are: One or both monitors go black, indicating cable connected but no signal arriving from the docking station. If there is a picture on one of the monitors at startup, it may or may not contain the login screen. (I can still log in because I know what keystrokes to send.) If the login screen is visible, ...

A:Latitude E7450, E-port 2, U2715H - dual monitors - unstable configuration

No responses, so I will add my own, on the way towards a solution, which I believe requires driver enhancements. Are you listening, Dell?
Together with a colleague who knows better than me what to look for, we discovered:- The Intel HD graphics control panel -> Display port topology only discovers one, not two display ports. This could be a problem with the panel or with the graphics driver.- Both Intel and Nvidia have more recent driver releases for their respective hardware components in the Latitude E7450 than those available from Dell but they cannot be installed directly. (NVidia 353.06 vs 341.27; Intel vs - I suspect digits 5 and 6 reflect an OEM numbering scheme). Intel says their driver update includes critical fixes for display support.- When we attempted to install the latest Nvidia driver, the display flashed in what seemed to be a non-trivial manner (before the update was automatically aborted). This could be related to a conflict between the two drivers.
I also discovered that even when only one of the Dell U2715H monitors is connected, it frequently goes black when it shouldn't. So it is not a question of a dual monitor configuration as I originally thought. I have also swapped docking stations to eliminate random hardware error in this component. The Intel driver's handling of display port(s) seems to be the most likely culprit.
Guessing from seeing repeated patterns of monitor behavior, a more precise diagnosis could be t... Read more

Back for more, and thanks in advance for any useful advice. I appreciate it. I've just finished configuring a dual boot Windows 7 (native OS)/XP Professional setup on my HP Pavilion dv4 2040us, and now that I've tweaked both OS's to my taste I'm wanting to do image backups of everything in the event of a catastrophic failure. Paranoia is good. Anyway, my questions: I know that Win 7 has a "System" partition that I must image WITH the Win 7 partition in order to recover, but I don't know if the XP partition is standalone or, because of the dual boot setup, it needs files from either the System partition or the Win 7 partition in order to boot properly. More lucidly: I would like the ability to reinstall either partition INDEPENDENTLY of the other, in case it's not a hard drive issue but instead an issue with that particular OS/partition that's pushing me to reinstall, but I'm not sure what all I need to image to gain this independence. Basically, I don't want to image the entire hard drive as one because if I'm only having trouble with one partition then I'd have to reinstall both to correct this. . Please, does anybody know the proper way to (combine) image(s) so that I can reinstall either partition/OS independently? Ahhh, I'm using Macrium Reflect Free Edition for the imaging, if it matters. Thank you for your patience, and thanks again for any help.

OK, I'll give a brief overview of what I'm working with and then describe my problem. I have a relatively new notebook (bought it about 2 months ago, I wouldn't think the exact specs are necessary but if they are let me know), a DSL connection and I have a Linksys Wireless-G router.

I've attempted to play two games online with a friend (Age of Empires 3 and Diablo 2), both of which resulted in nothing by headaches. In both games we attempted to directly connect to each other via IP. He also has a notebook and is using a wireless router. We've tried it both ways; me trying to connect to him and vice versa, same problem both times.

Now, I don't know a whole lot of anything about networking and routers and the such, but I'll put in what I do know. When I try hosting a Direct IP game, both games listed an IP at the top of the screen, but it wasn't my IP, it was what I think is called the local IP?

At work I am trying to figure out how to configure out wireless router. What I need to be able to do is to have people who use wifi to be able to also connect to our office file server (which will have shared printers so we can monitor usage amongst different departments). How can I do this? 90% of the office connects through wires using a static ip. Would I need to configure the router with a static ip as well? If so, would the wifi laptops need to have a static ip as well?

A:Wireless router configuration for use with file server

If there is a DHCP server on your office network, the following configuration for the router and allow the connections you seek. You could also use a wireless bridge if you haven't purchased yet.
Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

When I try to connect (from within my lan) to the public ip address of my server the program tells me it cannot find the server. I can't telnet to port 2347 and nmap tells me that the only ports that are open are 22, 23 and 80 ( I believe this are open by default on the router to allow remote management).

Let me say this much. If that were the case with my wireless network, I would be entering my 64 character passkey every time I connected to my wireless network. I could just copy and paste it from a text file, but then what is the point of doing that over just letting the computer save it for me? If your boss wants to make sure his wireless security is strong, his efforts are much better spent doing what I have done by going to the website linked below, copying the "64 random hexadecimal characters (0-9 and A-F)", while using either WPA, or WPA2. The kind of authentication I think he is getting at, is something a radius server would be better at providing, provided your computers were part of a domain.

In Windows 7, I know it is possible to have it not remember your passkey provided that you do not check the checkbox during the connection setup. My memory is a little off with XP. Does it provide something similar?
